Patches off key? Ultranova and library downloads?

I note that some patches are off key, or modulate key/tune during playing.  Is this something like detune in Edit Mode?  I want a C to be a C, so how can I disable any pitch shifting in a patch?  Also one patch only plays one note at a time -- how to fix this?  Is this a mono/poly phonic edit issue?  Lastly, I want to pick some cool sounds from the online library or UltraNova to download to my mininova.  Is there a way to review these before download, or do you just download the whole set and then delete the ones you don't want?  thx from 80302

Hi psychcowboy,

It's hard to say what is specifically occuring as the specific patch being used may have been designed to operate in that manner. This could be caused by numerous settings (e.g. oscillator tunings are transposed, voice settings are set to mono, etc.). You should be able to adjust the settings of the patch to your liking and save it as a new patch, but there are no ways to prevew a single patch without downloading the whole soundpack.

thx mathew -- i downloaded the 1.4 librarian, and then the DINO soundpack.syx onto my computer and then to C bank on my mininova. 

a couple good sounds there.  Questions:

1.  some sounds only play one note at once, I assume this is a monophony issue, how to change a patch to polyphony?  2.  i am looking for some more chillstep sounds, maybe the lightfinger mininova soundset, i guess i use the .sys version, i.e. is the .txt version just a description of the sounds?  3.  when typing in this window the text goes past the margins so you can't see everything you just typed, can that be fixed?  also there is no 'post comment' box, just a 'save' box.  4. some of my favorite synth sounds are on Sound Remedy Medicine Remix and m83 Wait -- if anyone can suggest soundpack downloads in that genre...thx.
